For the steam guys

Postby JK » Fri Oct 21, 2016 2:48 am

I was on the NFB (National Film Board for our international friends) site looking at all of the great vignettes from the late 70s and come across this one of a calliope. Great film. The second link has the Lurcher lighthouse ship as the first clip.
